Chairman on Squad Building

15 July 2013

Doncaster Rovers official website spoke to Chairman John Ryan about the summer squad building process.

How is the squad building for the new season going?
"It’s going well; we are working hard to bring in some good players who will compliment the squad we already have.

"It’s going to be a new challenge so we are trying to get a very fit and competitive squad ready for the start against Blackpool on August 3rd. 

"I know that Paul (Dickov) will deliver but we all have to have to be a little patient. I know fans are getting frustrated because things have not happened but I can promise that there is lots going on behind scenes. 

"I feel we will be a force to be reckoned with this coming season." 

Does Paul give you a list of his targets?
"Not really, the players we bring in are all down to Paul. He does approach us when he needs to do a deal - I try and assist him all I can. 

"I have a lot of contacts in football as does Paul, so we work together to get what we want. We are close to signing some very good players; Paul is working hard on that as we speak."

How close do you feel Paul is to having the squad he wants?
"We are not far away; we already had some very good players from last season and we are working hard to add even more quality into what is already a fantastic squad. 

"If you go back one year, Dean (Saunders) only had about four contracted players at this point and we were all worried that we would not have a squad for the season. Look at what happened there! 

"I would like to remind the fans that last year we had fewer players and won the league; so please be patient as there is a lot going on. 

"Please assess where we are on the 3rd August against Blackpool; I feel you will all be satisfied."
